Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago
Lydia Smith

Six travelers trek 500 miles from southern France to northwestern Spain, where, according to legend, the Apostle James is buried. The pilgrims, ranging in age from three to 73, face a 30-day trip of self-exploration against obstacles such as the sun, the wind, rain, blisters, joint pain, and more. “Over time, Camino becomes a noun, verb and state of mind. As weights are shed—from both the pack and the soul—everyone is somehow changed. Religious quest or not, one priest says, ‘the Camino is pure medicine…’As travelogue, this is a persuasive introduction. Viewer beware: The impulse to take a hike is strong. Wear sturdy shoes.” (Daniel Gold, NY Times)
